About the property

Romantic Carriage Home Perfectly Located In Rosemary Beach!

Escape to Rosemary Beach luxury in this spectacular carriage house designed by architect Bobby McAlpine and the acclaimed interior designer Kay Douglass.

The gorgeous Carriage House features unfinished antique oak floors, soothing color palette, full kitchen and eating area, flat screen TV, large bathroom with walk in glass-enclosed shower and a lovely loft with King Bed. This home is only steps down a wooden boardwalk to the magnificent sugar white sands and emerald waters. This property is perfect for a couple looking for a romantic and memorable vacation experience.

The main room combines a comfortable entertainment/TV area and a full kitchen. The kitchen includes a microwave, dishwasher, gas stove and subzero refrigerator ready to store your favorite coastal delicacies. French doors open onto a sunny balcony affording views of the Gulf.

Just up the spiral staircase, you will enter the master bedroom featuring a plush King bed. The bedroom is exquisite and opens to the living area below. Beautiful draperies can be pulled creating a cozy and serene atmosphere.

This carriage house can be rented along with the main house (if available). It can also be a perfect space for grandparents, grown children or nanny.

The town of Rosemary Beach, located along the gulf coast in Florida's panhandle, is a stunning example of new urbanism. Restaurants, coffee shop, book store, retail stores, art galleries, bank, post office, hair salon, fitness center, tennis center, 4 community pools, chapel and the beach - all in a walkable environment accessible via a network of boardwalks and pathways create a true, livable beach community.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house was a wonderful retreat for us. We went in early November and pretty much had the area to ourselves. We were surprised at how close the beach was from the house, literally just right around the corner. The house is also one street over from charming restaurants and shops. Walking distance to most places you would want to go! The bikes were nice to use as well. The AC unit wasn't the best, it took awhile for the place to cool down, but that would be my only complaint. The house was well-designed and well-equipped and we enjoyed every day there!

Perfect location, quiet, cozy getaway steps from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Rosemary Beach, within Water St, is like stepping into a different. Particularly love the boardwalks, gas lamps and the architectural theme. You can get everything you want in a Beach right outside the carriage house or a few steps east if you want a less populated feel. The greens and the pools within the community are nice options and bikes are an absolute must for exploring (included with this rental). We will continue to return ! Highly recommend - - A+

Good but better for younger people

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I are in our 60s and are in good health, however, I didn't realize I'd have to go down a spiral staircase to use the bathroom. An additional bathroom is needed on the same level as the bedroom for middle of the night use for people our age.

The carriage house was clean, TV big, easy walk to the beach and town. Bikes included which was nice, plus a great grill.

Tastefully decorated with lots of white and good lighting throughout.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As pictured in the VRBO listing there are stairs inside the house and from the garage to the the first level of the house. Anyone with difficulties climbing stairs might consider a different property. Thank you for your positive comments on the other aspects of the house.

Romantic Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got away for a long weekend. Loved the location and the convenience to the beach and the town. Loved the bike rides, walks on the beach and the sunsets. It was the perfect set up for a couple looking to relax and get away for a few days! We ate at the Cowgirl Kitchen and had a wonderful meal. I would definitely come back to this property.

The Calypso carriage house met every expectation! It is beautiful both inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

The location to the beach, pool as well as dining and shopping can't be beat. You don't have to drive anywhere once you arrive unless you want to. The two bicycles that come with the carriage house are a nice addition. Thank you for the wonderful stay and I look forward to the next visit!

Fantastic carriage house.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house. The wood throughout the residence is some of the nicest I've ever seen. It even smells terrific. Appliances are all excellent. The decor is tasteful and elegant. This place is quite simply one of the best deals you can find. My only observation for some improvement is that the tile in the shower is starting to show some wear and tear. Regardless of that my wife and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
